Work is presenting training obstacles that I am trying to work around. I miscalculated my mileage this week and was a quarter mile short of my goal. Its a very small amount but it still gets me on a mental level. Damn OCD!! Cheers!

It's the best form of motivation for sure. Glad you were able to get out there bflem, does your knee feel good from the rest? Ran up Mt. Diablo and back down on Sunday. Over 4,500 feet of climbing in 15.5 miles. It was a tough but great day indeed! Check out the video of my run: https://www.relive.cc/view/2173361846 Cheers!

Traveling for work plus we had some visitors over the weekend. Just the calm before the storm when training begins in two weeks. Hope ya'll are doing well. Cheers!

Slowly but surly getting my legs back. A little sinus thing has zapped my energy. Cheers!
  7.

  8. MILES AGAINST DIP Jan. 30 - Feb. 02, 2019: 39.00 MAD ...........................11,379.50 MAD total Footwear: Lone Peaks 3.0 Weight: hovering around 181 2019 race schedule: 01.20.19: Crystal Springs 35K: Complete 04:20:53 02.02.19: Fort Ord 50K: Complete 06:14:14 04.05.19: Forget The PR 50K, Volunteers Run: 08.16.19: Kodiak 100: Fort Ord 50K went better than expected. It was definitely a runners course. The hills were rolling except for some bigger climbs in the last 6.4 miles (my watch had 4,600 feet of elevation gain but I think it was closer to 4,200 feet of gain). It was a good mix of trail and fire roads. This was a completely exposed course (no big trees, mostly bushes, reminded me of Ireland) and you could see rolling green hills all over, it really was some stunning views. I wish I could of taken pics but it was storming off and on and I did not want to take a chance of my phone getting wet. I felt really good throughout the race. I was on pace to break 6 hours going into the last aid station. Everything kind of blew up from there, the last 6.4 miles was pounding rain, high winds, and big climbs on exposed hills. I am still extremely pleased with my finishing time. I got 41st overall out of 95 runners. The pizza and beer went down really well Saturday night. I have to get caught up on my blog for the two races from this year, will send out a link when I do. If you want to see an animation of my 50K then check it out: https://www.relive.cc/view/2120096695 Cheers!
  9. MILES AGAINST DIP Jan. 23 - Jan. 28, 2019: 30.00 MAD ...........................11,340.50 MAD total Footwear: Lone Peaks 3.5 Weight: hovering around 181 2019 race schedule: 01.20.19: Crystal Springs 35K: Complete 04:20:53 02.02.19: Fort Ord 50K: 04.05.19: Forget The PR 50K, Volunteers Run: 08.16.19: Kodiak 100: Bflem, how is the knee doing? I see you did an 8:40 pace for a 5K, nice work! Tiger, heck yeah brother! Get out to the trails, that's where all the fun is at! Still somewhat recovering from the 35K last weekend but for the most part I feel I am ready for Fort Ord this weekend. Going to Portland for work tomorrow through Thursday. Hoping to get a few miles in along the Columbia River while I am there. I won't be posting until after the race but have a good week and a better weekend. Cheers!
  10. MILES AGAINST DIP Jan. 18 - Jan. 22, 2019: 31.50 MAD ...........................11,310.50 MAD total Footwear: Lone Peaks 3.0 Weight: hovering around 181 2019 race schedule: 01.20.19: Crystal Springs 35K: Complete 04:20:53 02.02.19: Fort Ord 50K: 04.05.19: Forget The PR 50K, Volunteers Run: 08.16.19: Kodiak 100: The 35K went well on Sunday and I ended up with less than a 12 minute mile pace overall even with 3,200 feet of climbing over the 22 miles. It poured down rain for most of the race and parts of the trails were very soupy with mud. I felt good, went out way to hard for the first half of the race which was mostly climbing. I had a lot of fun and the trails were phenomenal, there is something really special about running through Redwood Trees. I didn't take my phone with me due to the rain so I was not able to get any pictures. I will be working on the race report soon. Want to get it wrapped up before Fort Ord 50K which is less than 2 weeks away! Cheers!
  11. MILES AGAINST DIP Jan. 17, 2019: 9.50 MAD ...........................11,279.00 MAD total Footwear: Lone Peaks 3.5 Weight: hovering around 181 2019 race schedule: 01.20.19: Crystal Springs 35K: 02.02.19: Fort Ord 50K: 04.05.19: Forget The PR 50K, Volunteers Run: 08.16.19: Kodiak 100: Bflem! Glad to hear your knee pain has calmed down a bit. Stay on the tumeric and keep running! A lot of tree debris laying all over the place as I surveyed the damage from the high winds and rain last night https://www.strava.com/activities/2085877315. It is definitely nice running in the daylight Tiger! Cheers!
  12. MILES AGAINST DIP Jan. 16, 2019: 4.50 MAD ...........................11,269.50 MAD total Footwear: Lone Peaks Weight: hovering around 183 2019 race schedule: 01.20.19: Crystal Springs 35K 02.02.19: Fort Ord 50K: 04.05.19: Forget The PR 50K, Volunteers Run: 08.16.19: Kodiak 100: I managed to avoid the monsoon today. Ran during a little break in the rain. Going through the woods during 40 to 50 mph winds was kind of hairy though. Probably not the best idea I've ever, that's the ultra runner brain working. Looking forward to the 35K this weekend (22 miler). It will be a nice last long run before Fort Ord 50K in two weeks. Cheers!
  13. MILES AGAINST DIP Jan. 9 - Jan. 15, 2019: 38.75 MAD ...........................11,265.00 MAD total Footwear: Lone Peaks Weight: hovering around 183 2019 race schedule: 01.20.19: Crystal Springs 35K 02.02.19: Fort Ord 50K: 04.05.19: Forget The PR 50K, Volunteers Run: 08.16.19: Kodiak 100: Rainy season here in SF. I don't mind, this is the first winter of my lifetime where I don't have to deal with freezing temperatures, ice, and snow. So many mornings in the midwest of scraping shit off my windshield while waiting for the car to warm up. I am not missing that right now! Cheers!

MILES AGAINST DIP Jan. 7, 2019: 5.00 MAD ...........................11,226.25 MAD total Footwear: Lone Peaks Weight: hovering around 183 2019 race schedule: 02.02.19: Fort Ord 50K: 04.05.19: Forget The PR 50K, Volunteers Run: 08.16.19: Kodiak 100: Starting to work on my base. Official training for Kodiak hundo will start at the end of February. Cheers!
  15.
